Ohio State is a Sexually Healthy School

Posted By on Thu, Oct 7, 2010 at 3:26 PM


Despite living and going to school on a Big Ten campus pervaded by temptation, nubile flesh, free-flowing alcohol, and raging hormones, Ohio State students maintain a remarkably high degree of sexual health.

According to Fifth Annual Trojan® Sexual Health Report Card, Ohio State is the third most sexually healthy school in the nation.

Good for them for wrapping it up, or pulling it out, or whatever it is they're doing to avoid those pesky STDs that can ruin a young college kid's clothes-free plans.

Columbia was first, Michigan second, and the University of Idaho came in last, which is probably a fact better left off their recruiting material. "The University of Idaho: You probably already caught something and you haven't even taken your pants off yet."

The categories used by Trojan to measure your school's hanky-panky health quotient:


To develop this year's rankings, researchers at Sperling's BestPlaces analyzed data from campus health centers and student opinion polls across 12 separate categories. Based on this analysis, each category was assigned a letter grade and a cumulative GPA was calculated, based on a four point scale.

Sexual Health Report Card Categories:

1. Health center hours of operation
2. Availability of patient drop-in vs. appointment only
3. Availability of separate sexual awareness program
4. Contraceptive availability and cost
5. Condom availability and cost
6. HIV testing, cost and locality (on- vs. off-campus)
7. Other STI testing, cost and locality (on- vs. off-campus)
8. Availability of anonymous advice via email / newspaper column
9. Existence of lecture / outreach programs
10. Existence of student peer groups
11. Availability of sexual assault programs
12. Website usability and functionality
